By 2046, a new world has risen from the ashes of the Last Great War, but it struggles to survive without knowing its history. So much was obliterated by the war's devastation that little is known of the pre-war world, and less is known of how to avoid repeating the past's mistakes.
In this new and troubling time, Historical Investigators embark on missions outside their new cities, looking for any clues as to what could've gone so wrong that Mankind was nearly destroyed by his own hand. Mary Morgan is one such investigator.
Although young - considered part of the new generation born after the Last Great War - Mary is mentored by the Alchemist Juggler Vein as they work alongside the current head of the World Leadership Council Dr. Parsimonious Creed. This trio has worked tirelessly to uncover the world's history, to piece together the facts, and to discover exactly what NOT to do again. Progress is slow but productive until the night Dr. Creed is attacked and left for dead in his ransacked home. Clearly, he was on a path to an important discovery that someone did not want him making.
After this, Mary's investigative skills are put to the test despite the new World Leader Herr Bigly Rump's insistence that investigations into the past are now forbidden. Worse, he's put a price on her head for having the nerve to try to stop him from becoming the new Magistrate of the World Leadership Council. Out of a job and on the run, Mary suspects Herr Bigly Rump may have more to lose than an election if the past truly can be discovered.
What Reviewers Are Saying:
It Is What It Is:
Mary Morgan's Journal is an award-winning full-color graphic novel series that came to life in late 2016 just after the Presidential election. Although it begins in the year 2046 in a post-apocalyptic world, it parallels many of the current events we've faced in these few years since that pivotal vote. It is blatant political satire suitable for adults as well as teens, political or not.
Although categorized as "graphic novels," these books do not conform to the standard graphic novel format. There are no "panels" and none are in black-and-white.
